The Young and the Restless

These two little buggers have been fighting so much lately. They seriously won't leave each other alone. One is always taking something from the other or beating the other up. Dylann usually starts it by teasing Jack about something and then Jack fights back by smacking him.


Dylann: Ha ha! I have the green cup! Ha ha!

Jack: (starts crying) Waaaah!

Dylann: (looking smug) I sure am glad I have the GREEN cup.

Jack: (tears turn to a look of anger at this horrible situation and he realizes he NEEDS that cup - he knocks Dylann over and tries to get a hold of it)

Dylann: (screams and cries) AHH! HELP! JACK IS HITTING ME!!

Mom: (can be seen running away from the house as fast as humanly possible because this is the 85th time this has happened that day)


They're constantly in competition. It seems to be ingrained in them that they need to win at everything they do. I've tried separating them, but it's like they can't stay away from each other. They don't want to play together, but they don't want to be apart either. I didn't have any brothers or sisters to contend with growing up, so maybe that's why I'm lost at what to do with these angry little monkeys.

Can't we all just get along?

I come from a large, extended family and have two daughters that are a mere 19 monts apart (9 & 11).

They, too, fight constantly...but if anyone else tries to mess with them or is mean to them they better watch out cause "ain't nobody mean to my sister but me"

Yeah, they have that attitude too. At home they're fighting like crazy and as soon as we go anywhere they're glued together and looking out for each other.
